Canon PowerShot G1 X review

What Digital Camera
8 May 2012
  • Summary: The Canon G1 X's sensor is the star of the show. The images this camera can produce are exceptional, easily of a DSLR quality - and it's not often that's said. But in use there are issues. The hefty price tag ought to bring a better, more advanced autofocus system, plus the close-focus distance of the lens can be limiting. The viewfinder, too, is no better than that found in the PowerShot G12 .

Canon PowerShot G1 X review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: While it is still unknown whether Canon will enter the compact system camera market, for now the PowerShot G1 X fills this gap in the company's range. The large sensor performs extremely well, and it is enough to rival many CSCs. With a 28-112mm equivalent range, the 4x zoom lens should fulfil the demands of most DSLR photographers looking for the convenience of a smaller camera, but without the additional cost of purchasing a new system.

An advanced compact camera with extensive manual features, capable of capturing super-clear images

Good Gear Guide.au
30 April 2012
  • Summary: Canon's PowerShot G1X is a high-level performer. Its image quality in our tests was excellent, as was its overall performance. It's a camera that's well built, it features manual controls and it's comfortable to use for the most part. It's not ideal for macros and it doesn't have a huge zoom, but it's nevertheless a great all-rounder.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Comfortable to use with extensive manual controls
  • Cons: Not great for macros, Only 4x zoom

  • Excerpt: Har nÃ¥ brukt min G1X i overkant av et Ã¥r. Er stort sett fornøyd med kameraet med god ergonomi og lett tilgjengelige instillingshjul og knapper samt oversiktlige menyer. Veldig praktisk og gjæft med den store vridbare skjermen som er skarp og fin Ã¥ bruke under de fleste forhold og kan vendes... Les hele erfaringen... Har nÃ¥ brukt min G1X i overkant av et Ã¥r.
  • Pros: Suverend god billedkvalitet! Med gode ISO prestasjoner, God ergonomi med god vridbar skjerm.. Menyer, kontroll hjul og direkte knapper, Kompakt selv om det er stort i sin klasse.., Meget bra bildekvalitet, Full manuell kontroll over det meste, Bra HD Video med lite støy pÃ¥ zoomingen, Høy kvalitet pÃ¥ bildene., Lite støy opp til 6400 ISO, God kvalitet.
  • Cons: DÃ¥rlig batterikapasitet.., DÃ¥rlig lystyrke pÃ¥ obejektivet samt macro.. litt treg autofokus.., Ingen action kamera..., AutoISO kun opp til 1600 (hÃ¥per firmwareoppgrad. kommer og løser dette), Fast opptikk vs det nye EOS-M, Kan jage litt etter fokus i meget dÃ¥rlig lys, Auto ISO burde ha vært opp til 3200, Dyrt ekstrautstyr (kjøp heller fra Kina), Litt vanskelig Ã¥ fokusere i dÃ¥rlig lys

PowerShot G1 X

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Mit der Canon PowerShot G1 X (Datenblatt) will Canon Fotografen mit gehobenen Ansprüchen an die Bildqualität überzeugen und versucht dabei sicherlich auch ein Stück vom Kuchen des Marktes der spiegellosen Systemkameras abzubekommen. Dafür wird ein großer Sensor in ein relativ kleines Gehäuse mit einem nicht wechselbaren Objektiv gesteckt, kombiniert mit dem Bedienkonzept der seit Jahren erfolgreichen G-Serie.
  • Pros: Großer CMOS-Sensor (18,7 x 14,0 Millimeter) mit 14,0 Megapixel, Sehr gute Bildqualität bei niedrigen und mittleren ISO-Werten, Verhältnismäßig wenig Bildrauschen auch bei hohen ISO-Werten (ISO 1.600 und darüber), Hochauflösendes (920.000 Subpixel) dreh- und schwenkbares Display mit sehr guter Bildqualität, Objektiv scharf vom Zentrum bis zum Rand, quasi keine chromatischen Aberrationen, Sehr gute Detailwiedergabe, Aufnahme im RAW Format möglich, Gute Automatiken und H...
  • Cons: Der erste Auslöserdruckpunkt ist gewöhnungsbedürftig schwammig (zweiter Druckpunkt: gut), Lange Naheinstellgrenze (ab 20cm) - für Makros völlig unbrauchbar, Kürzeste Verschlusszeit nicht in allen Modi verfügbar, Serienbildmodus außer im High-Speed-Modus relativ langsam, Langsamer Autofokus im Videomodus, Nur 24 Vollbilder pro Sekunde im Videomodus bei Full-HD-Auflösung (1080p24), Schwache Lichtstärke im Telebereich, Für eine Kompaktkamera relativ groß und schwer, Klei...
